School dinner prices frozen for fifth year in row

THE price of school meals in Hampshire schools will be fixed at £2 from April for a fifth consecutive year.

Each year the councillor in charge of children’s services is asked to review the price of school meals. Cllr Roy Perry agreed with the report compiled by county officers that the price should not be raised.

Numbers of pupils taking school dinners have increased dramatically in recent years in county primary schools, as 41 per cent of children now take them, up from 39 per cent the previous year, which was a rise of 10 per cent from the year before.
